How to solve the problems that they create.
When one of the friends of my 7-year-old son comes to visit us, he begins to torment our cat. I ask him to be softer, but this does not help. What to do?
Perhaps this child simply does not have pets, and he does not understand what it means to be softer with a cat. Show him how to handle your pet.
Caress the cat, saying: “This is how Musenka likes, this is how she needs to be stroked. You see how she purrs with pleasure! ” If the boy continues to torment the cat, isolate it - there is no point in continuing this torture. On occasion, talk with the child's parents, but not when you will accompany him. Just arrange to call later. In the evening, on the phone, tell us what you saw, but refrain from evaluating: “I wanted to inform you that Misha is rude to our cat: drags her by the tail and generally turns very freely. I’m worried that the cat will eventually bite or scratch him. ” In the future, act on the situation. If parents were able to instill in their son elementary rules, this is wonderful. If the boy does not change his behavior, just do not invite him to the house anymore. Crude treatment of animals is not the best option to follow. For the safety of your beloved cat, you can take such measures, is not it?
My dog was terribly sheared at the hairdresser, where we go for a long time. I was shocked ... As a result, I just paid and left. What could I do?
If you have any problems at the hairdresser, do not pay until you talk to the manager. It is in the interests of this person that you should be satisfied and come back to his salon the next time. Explain to the manager what you originally wanted (but without criticism!). Emphasize that this is how he was always cut at this hairdresser. Then let the manager make the decision himself and evaluate if it is right for you. If you are offered a free haircut next time, you can answer:
“Thank you, but I need the dog to look good this weekend.” Can another master trim his coat now? ” You still have the opportunity to rectify the situation, even if you are upset and went home. Call the manager and let us know that although you have not made a complaint, the dog was not trimmed the way you wanted, and you are very disappointed. Do not hang up until a solution is found. If the manager’s best offer doesn’t suit you, perhaps it’s time to change the interior. No matter what the lawsuit ends in the future, always clearly indicate to the stylist how long you would like to cut the hair, what shape to make the ears and tail.
Whenever we come to the dog park, a larger dog attacks me in York. His mistress is constantly talking on the phone and does not notice anything. How to proceed?
Most people want their dogs to behave well. To attract attention, make eye contact and raise your finger: “May I have a moment?” Address politely: “Maybe you didn’t notice, but your dog continues to bully my terrier, do something!” Most likely, after this, the hostess will intervene. If your request is ignored, it is worthwhile to find out if there are any rules and laws that do not allow aggressive behavior of dogs. Look for information on the Internet, print out the most important and take with you the next walk.
The neighbors in the country leave their dog tied in the yard for the night; he barks non-stop. Help!
Do not show your annoyance. Talk to your neighbors. If you are friends, then personally (but not in the middle of the night) tell them: “I am worried about your dog - she barks all the time when you leave her for the night on the street. Maybe something can be done about it? ” If you are barely familiar, write them the same thing in a note, leaving your name and phone number in it. If the neighbors don’t meet you (“This is such a breed - they bark all the time”), go to the next step. Record how much the dog barked (dates and times), and connect the other neighbors who are also inconvenient. Some partnerships require you to collect complaints from a certain number of residents in order to introduce some restrictions. This, of course, is not neighborly, but it does!

Sometimes our cat goes to the toilet on the bed. Why is she doing this? How do we deal with the problem?
Such behavior may be associated with an uncomfortable tray (or its location), inappropriate filler, stress factors (prolonged absence of the host, punishment). Analyze the possible causes. You can use special deterrent sprays that are sold in pet stores. The cat's “nose poking” into excrement is usually inconclusive. After she once again goes to the toilet in the wrong place, take her to the tray so that she understands that her needs are good.
It should be only there.
How to deal with the foul odor from a cat's toilet? I use filler, but still have a smell ...
Change the filler in a timely manner. Use odor suppressants such as CATSAN. Its patented Extra Mineral Protection technology provides additional protection against odor: active substances inhibit the growth of bacteria and retain the smell inside the granule.
